I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Mobile oven regulations

    It seems to have a commercial trailer hot and cold water is necessary both for washing food and for washing hands (a constant 80 degrees f) I am currently building a 4' external oven and wish to mount it onto a 4' x 6' trailer, I shall design the work surface so it slides of folds away, I can also use cool box's to take care of the refrigeration aspect but was thinking, if I were to wrap 10mm flexible copper tubing around the dome surely it would be great for heating water but any ideas how I could rig this up so it worked properly....Seems I would have use the evil electricity to run a pump,,,,something I was hoping to avoid, Any ideas???? Thank you

    If you coiled the copper pipe around the dome and connected it to a tank on top of the oven the water will flow to tank. Many solar hot water systems use this principle, no pump required.

      Rather than robbing the heat from your dome, you could put the coil around the flue. If it's a pizza only operation, there will always be a live fire and a hot flue. Remember, no matter how you do it, it may at some point run dry: I'd steer clear of soft-soldered plumbing fittings.

        Also, I think you will need to be able to regulate the temp (too hot will not be accepted). Can that be done without electricity?

          Brilliant idea, I'd have to be careful about the centre of gravity being so high though. Could be dodgy on a trailer.

            Google Images "Hand Water Pumps" they are used in RV's and boats.
            Or transport the water low on the trailer, and fill a higher container as needed.

            Enjoy life! It's limited, you only get as much as you take.

              I'm all about making everything possible myself, and trust me many times I take that to the extreme, but I've always figured if I ever go mobile(which I've thought about) I would try and get away with one of these:

              Amazon.com: Coleman Hot Water-On-Demand Portable Water Heater: Sports & Outdoors

              For the couple hundred bucks I just think it is worth my time and trouble getting a oven based system up and running reliably, and running off small propane tanks and batteries it is highly portable.
